While Pro Kabaddi teams can release players ahead of the auction, it doesn’t mean the end of the relationship between the player and the franchise. The Final Bid Match rule allows teams that have released their players from the previous season to buy them back during the auction at the price of the final bid from a rival team.

All 12 teams are eligible to use their two Final Bid Match cards during the Pro Kabaddi 2021 player auction. U Mumba has kept four Elite Retained Players for Season 8, the most by any team, while Tamil Thalaivas and U.P. Yoddha do not have any Elite Retained Players in their midst.
